House Commerce Committee Takes Up MIIAB "Certificate of Insurance" bill - February 17th

In an effort to stop the abuses that are happening when issuing a "Certificate of Insurance", the MIIAB has introduced a bill that will clarify what specifically can and cannot be placed on a Certificate. On Tuesday, February 17, the House Commerce Committee will be taking up our bill in their committee. Our friend and college, Representative Greg Davids (R), has agreed to support this bill and this committee. Bernie Neff, renowned expert in the insurance field and the MIIAB education consultant will be testifying with Dave Szczepanski, the Garry Insurance Agency, and MIIAB President, Dick McKenny, the Advance Insurance Agency, in favor of passage of this bill that will help clarify what needs to be presented on a Certificate. Our Lobbyist, Dominic Sposeto, will also be on hand to help move this bill through the committee and legislature. He will be keeping us informed on the direction of this bill, and more than likely members will be called upon to contact their legislator in convincing them to support this needed legislation. 

MIIAB Supports the Chambers "Business Day at the Capitol" - March 18th

MIIAB is a co-sponsor of this event, along with other businesses throughout Minnesota. I invite each of our members to participate in this worthwhile event. When you register, representatives of the Chamber will assist you in making the necessary appointments with your local representatives. Last year we were very well represented by our member agents. This would also be a great opportunity for our members to call upon their representatives to discuss the ever growing problem with "Certificates of Insurance".
Once again, we thank you for your support and hope to see you all at the Capitol!
